I really like green smoothies and sometimes go through phases of having them daily.

The issue I have found in the past is that smoothies can get very calorie packed if you are not careful about the different additions some people recommend (nuts/seeds, protein powder, juices, milk, yoghurt, oats etc).

A typical way I enjoy a green smoothie is as part of breakfast, so I have a few variations depending on how much of my breakfast meal the smoothie is to make up.

Basic green smoothie (a substantial part of breakfast)

1-2 handfuls greens (e.g. spinach, watercress, kale)
2 fruits (e.g. an apple and a small banana, or an apple and 1/2 cup of frozen berries)
1 cup water (not milk, coconut milk, juice or other calorific liquid)
1/2 scoop of a plain protein powder (usually rice or soy)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds.

Minimal green smoothie (as an "aside" to breakfast, more a drink than a food)

1-2 handfuls greens (e.g. spinach, watercress, kale)
2 fruits (e.g. an apple and a small banana, or an apple and 1/2 cup of frozen berries)
1 cup water
Juice of half a lemon

Full meal green smoothie (replace whole of breakfast)

1-2 handfuls greens (e.g. spinach, watercress, kale)
2 fruits (e.g. an apple and a small banana, or an apple and 1/2 cup of frozen berries)
1 cup water (may need extra if too thick)
1 full scoop of a plain protein powder (usually rice or soy)
1 tablespoon of chia seeds or flax seeds.
2 tablespoons of plain oats (may need more if you are very active)

Thank you for the variations on a green smoothie. It is easy for me to get stuck in a rut; now I am anxious to try out these new ideas. I hope they will help others, too.
